By That's Beijing, September 6, 2017

2 0

If you’re big on carbs – Paleo diet, go [expletive] yourself, right? – then you’re going to love new French-style bakery Alesia. We’re talking freshly baked bread and pastries, strong smooth coffee, and high-quality ingredients at modest prices (RMB15-24). Conveniently located in the heart of Dongzhimen, the cafe is a colorful addition to the area. (Literally. Check out that mint green storefront.)
